Natural Resources #Wales, our environmental regulator, has carried out a baseline assessment of protected sites. The results are worrying; the condition of half of them is unknown, and the condition of 30% is unfavourable. Only 1 in 5 of our protected sites is in a favourable ecological condition!

Not got the time to read 227 pages of the International Energy Agency (IEA)'s latest report? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ“”

Us neither. That's why we're so glad that Carbon Brief has produced this summary carbonbrief.org/iea-renewables (tl;dr: invest in renewables)

It's packed with info on the projections of all aspects of energy, including renewables, coal, gas, hydrogen and transport.

This US article (modernfarmer.com/2021/05/opini) about putting carbon labels on food products is a good read - and it references a peer-reviewed paper (sciencedirect.com/science/arti) showing that even climate sceptics choose lower-carbon products when provided with information ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘
